Punjab polls: Amarinder Singh tells Arvind Kejriwal to contest against him
The former CM of the Punjab's challenge came after the Delhi CM Kejriwal arlier in a tweet had nudged the Punjab Congress leader.
As the Punjab polls is around the corner, state Congress president Amarinder Singh on Wednesday dared Aam Aadmi Party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to contest against him in the upcoming Punjab elections, PTI reported.
The former CM of the Punjab's challenge came after the Delhi CM Kejriwal arlier in a tweet had nudged the Punjab Congress strongman asking if he was contesting against Punjab CMM Prakash Singh Badal, state deputy CM Sukhbir Badal, junior Badal's brother-in-law Bikram Majithia or from a "safe seat".
Singh, in a tweet, hits back instantly saying the Badal chapter in Punjab was over and that Kejriwal should come and fight elections in Punjab and he would fight Kejriwal.
"Badals' story is over. You tell me where you're contesting from and I will come fight you there!(sic)," Amarinder said.
The PCC chief's response came after Kejriwal tweeted, "Sir, r u fighting against Prakash Badal ji or sukhbir Badal or Majithia or safe seat(sic)?"
Amarinder had earlier in the day accused AAP of "colluding" with Badals after the Kejriwal-led party fielded former journalist Jarnail Singh against Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal in Lambing constituency, saying that he was a weak candidate.
